    This is the most stupid thing I have ever seen, something that every human in the world does is now being classified as something bad for you. whats next, clipping our nails causes a bacteria to grow under the nail and can give ebola or maybe they say that taking a shower can kill you, just for the attention and views. Thank God this didn't get that many likes.

    One time my lil sis got a cut inside her nose and since it was connected 2 her eyes, they got all puffy and she coulda died. They put her on antibiotics(I think. Tbh I was like 8 wen this happened. P.s she's 1 yr younger than me) She recovered and we still have the teddy bear they gave her from the hospital.

    FFS picking your nose to get a crusty crow out is one of lifes last pleasures... as is having a big shit... a wank and emptying a full bladder when you've been unable to go... same with picking dry itchy scabs and popping spots that hurt because of pressure.. all very rewarding. .... I suggest this snot gobbling quack focuses on some real ailments!

    I expect its also linked to climate change and global warming due to the strenuous effort in excavating bogies!!

    You know what else I forgot to mention? Picking your nose is MUCH healthier than smoking or overeating. If you are going to engage in bad habits, please consider picking your nose.
